Atlanta continued to be rocked by turmoil Saturday as protesters demand justice for Rayshard Brooks, a 27-year-old Black man who was fatally shot by police the previous day.
Brooks was killed outside Wendy’s after police claimed he resisted arrest after they found him sleeping in his car. But video posted to social media showed him running away before he is shot off-screen.
Brooks had allegedly fallen asleep in his car and blocked the restaurant’s drive-through when Atlanta police were called. Police said he failed a sobriety test.
Police Chief Erika Shields resigned earlier in the day Saturday.
